    Where are you riding tomorrow?

    Just trying to get some ideas on where I should ride tomorrow. I have all day off and looking to get a solid ride in.

    Horse toilet Friday afternoon with a coworker. It'll be a TSP sort of ride, parking at the bottom, seven springs then the top loop theeeen down the back side, around the 7/11 and down the tracks.

    Wish I had the time to put some miles in, might be able to Sunday... not sure yet. Maybe i'll find some time to hurt my self trying urban stuff...

    Yeehaw

    LOL, “horse toilet”—that could be so many different places.

    Unless I go on a (short) ride with my wife tomorrow, I’ll be trying to make up for lost time up in the Sierra Azul range, regardless of how motherfookin’ cold as fauk it is going to be there. Hoping Quicksilver will be open so I can do a Quicksilver -> Woods -> Power Poles -> Dogmeat (no-dabs on the fatbike, of course) -> Rollercoasters -> Woods -> Quicksilver ride. Blew my chance to go on a ride on Tuesday, work was crazy busy Wednesday and today (Thursday). Kicking myself for not having ridden on Tuesday.

    What time are you thinking? I'm still undecided but somewhere around Empire Grade sounds enticing.

    You ever been to Freemont Older? They have stables next to the OSP so there are a ton of horses everywhere, all the time, all year round. With corresponding amounts of horsesh!t.
    Most of the riders/trainers/tour leaders are pretty nice in my experience however!

    Nah, don't do that. The locals hate interlopers. The trails here suck and the rangers are worse than MidPen. They set up speed traps all over Wilder and when you pull up and ask about *unmentionable* they look at you and then ask "do you need to?" It totally sucks over here. Plus, it has been cold. I had three layers on while exploring a local park.

    Did I mention (bite me squashy, I am doing this for AR) that this side of the hill is occupied by CHUM? He will seek you out and run into you. Doesn't matter if it is Demo, UCSC, Nisene or Wilder...well, actually, he's too lazy to ride to any of those these days "just moved" and all...but if you come near him, he will crash into you.

    So, long story short, the riding may be awesome in Santa Cruz, but we don't encourage coming over here to support it. Hell, despite his whining about the youngster, we still see snowjnky way too damn often...damn govt employees.

    Did I mention conditions are horrible?

    A little late on the start time for me also. Squashyo needs to be back in LG by 4 but I would be willing to extend my stay since I'm traveling a bit further. Hopefully we could sync up somewhere out there.

    On the Pogonip side things were good last Friday but definitely more wet on Wilder/Mailbox.

    I'm open to any start time, just let me know what works for ya.

    I'll be bringing the Tallboy because I don't own a long travel bike.... I'm down for a cruise because my legs are hammered right now.

    I will tow my Mojo HD so shouldn't be terribly slow. I have a meeting at 11am which will probably end at 11:30. I'll PM you.

    It's cold out there. I'm trying to get this "training" thing situated so I can at least get last place on the 27th.
